5:04 pm
earlier and people are worried about the revenue. a lot of people might have planned their vacations to be down leer for the peak period but the organizers are taking a rosy outlook when it comes to revenue associated with the cherry blossoms. this cherry blossom season will be unique thanks to these balmy temperatures that have prompted festival organizers to move up the peak bloom period. >> this is actually the earliest i have experienced it in 16 years, and probably i might think it's the earliest in history. >> reporter: the welcome center that's set up at the tidal center will open sooner and there are hundreds of performers who will have to be rescheduled to an earlier date. >> the stage will be changed but other than that everything is as scheduled. >> reporter: while the buds are just starting to puff up a little, people still come here to walk along the river and be beneath the trees. for some it's a job that starts in january, but theirs is a labor of love. still some people come from out of town and they're surprised to hear that peak bloom date is being moved up. >> really? oh, my goodness.
5:05 pm
that's not too far away. >> reporter: alas, still too far away for this disappointed utah resident. >> i have to see the cherry blossoms. we just came just a little too early. >> reporter: but organizers say that the earlier bloom would just mean more time to spend with washington's favorite flora. >> it could be very positive for the city that they're blooming during the time of spring break so lots of people have more flexibility. >> reporter: time won't be the only thing spent. the expects 1.5 million people who come spend money. the folks at destination d.c. who promote the city still think the revenue impact this year will be on par with last year and organizers say missing the peak doesn't mean you missed the beauty. >> peak means 0% of t70% of the blossoms. >> reporter: typically the festival brings more than $150 million in revenue to town. now, the revised date does at least partially coincide with the actual festival itself with all of those activities. a lot of t
5:06 pm
from here. that's from march 20th through april 17th. they haven't changed that but coming up on news4 later, let's see what it might mean for some of the traffic that always accompanies the cherry blossoms down here around the tidal basin. in the meantime, just enjoy the weather. live in the tidal basin, derrick ward, news4. >> indeed. thank you, derrick. we set some new record high temperatures today. >> boy, did we. v.j., how about a repeat performance tomorrow? >> okay, sure. that will be easy to do. in fact, i think that some areas could be some five degrees higher than they were today. so we're talking about maybe topping out at 85. by the way, amelia segal looking back there at some some of the records. march 15th in 1990 was the earliest for starting peak bloom at the tidal basin. look at the temperatures today. manassas 84 the high temperature for today. yes, new record at dulles. it had been held on this date since 2000. and 81 bwi airport. it haden

now we're forecasting another 8 80-degree day tomorrow. and then we're talking about some rain. we're tracking that coming up in just a few minutes. guys? all right, veronica, thank you. in the race for the white house now, jeb bush is set to meet with all the republican candidates whose last name is not trump. and ted cruz picked up a new endorsement today from the former rival. nbc news confirmed this afternoon bush will meet with cruz, marco rubio, and john kasich. rubio is set to appear in a town hall tonight with chuck todd, but his campaign appears to be on life support after a disappointing tuesday night. he finished third or fourth in all four contests and failed to pick up a single delegate. meanwhile, ted cruz, who won idaho by a double digit margin, earned the support of former gop hopeful carly fiorina. >> donald trump and hillary clinton are two sides
5:08 pm
same coin. they're not going to reform the system. they are the system. when the establishment says ted cruz is too conservative, he's too much of a fighter, he won't get along, i say you go, ted. >> on the democratic side, bernie sanders scored an upset win last night, a big one, narrowly defeating hillary clinton last night in michigan. clinton also had a landslide win in mississippi. clinton also maintains a wide lead when it comes to the delegates, and donald trump appears to have the edge ahead of winner-take-all contest next tuesday in ohio and the big state of florida. but last night's wins in michigan, mississippi, and hawaii, trump now has more than a third of the delegates needed to clench the nomination. cruz trails him by fewer than a hundred. rubio and kasich are farther in their home
5:09 pm
ohio and florida. factoring in superdelegates, clinton is more than halfway to securing the democratic nomination with more than twice sanders' support. and developing tonight, sad news for a 26-year-old woman and a setback for many more hoping for a break through that would allow them to give birth. the first uterus transplant in the united states has now failed. the cleveland clinic just held a press conference monday to discuss what was believed to be a successful transplant in a patient named lindsey. doctors say lindsey developed a serious complication yesterday and the uterus was removed. it's now being studied to find out what went wrong. this evening the man suspected of shooting a prominent idaho pastor after a ted cruz rally is in custody here in washington. secret service took kyle odom into custody last night after a three-day manhunt. it appears e dom

a flight in boise and fly to the district. officers took him into custody after they found him throwing documents over the white house fence. about two dozen secret service officers searched the white house grounds today focusing on a grassy area near 17th street and state place. news4's mark segraves just got out of court and joins us live in northwest washington with details on this case that is developing. >> reporter: kyle odom made his first appearance before a judge just moments ago, this after being arrested out of the white house last night. the judge ordered that he be held without bond. he'll be staying in washington, d.c., until next month. now, odom was arrested outside the white house last night after he was seen throwing documents, house fence. today in court he said good afternoon to the judge and waited and listened as prosecutors said he should be held without bail. they also said idaho has a
5:11 pm
warrant for his arrest for attempted murder. he's not facing any charges for the incident at the white house. simply a tuge tiff warrant for his return to idaho. typically defendants will waive their rights to an extradition hearing but that's not what happened today. in an unusual move, odom told the judge he wants to be heard before the chief judge here in d.c. superior court. the only issue at that hearing will be whether or not this is a valid warrant out of idaho and whether or not, in fact, he is kyle odom. now, that hearing has been scheduled for april 6th. i can tell you there were fbi agents as well as federal prosecutors expecting him to be released to their custody so he could be extradited back to idaho but that's not what happened today. there was a bench conference. it is expected that while odom is in custody here for the remainder of this month, he will undergo a mental evaluation. that's the very latest from d.c. superior court. jim, back to you. >>

i'm pat lawson muse at the live desk. right now doctors are working to try to save an apartment who was pulled from an apartment fire in southeast washington. the fire started just before 4:00 this afternoon on minnesota avenue. firefighters say when they got there, they found flames coming from three floors of an apartment building and they rescued a person from the third floor. that person is listed in critical condition. several firefighters, two, in fact, were also treated for minor injuries. d.c. police say several school resource officers ran into that building and that they rescued a dog and several people before firefighters even got there. we don't know where those resource officers came from, but we do know that anacostia high sc i

5:17 pm
>> reporter: one example being given is the murder of a mother and her 2-year-old daughter in prince george's county last month. allegedly shot by the child's father who was angry about support payments. >> her partner came right up to her car and just killed her, and so we need to put some real laws in place to prohibit all of this killing that's going on, especially for women. >> reporter: this counter demonstration was held by gun owners on the street in front of the state house. your sign says self-defense is a second amendment right. >> correct. i would like my second amendment is to own and carry a firearm and i cannot in the state of maryland and that's why i'm out here. >> cdc study has just come out recently saying that an increase in guns correlates to a decrease in crime. and it makes sense because criminals will not go where there's danger. >> reporter: gun owners say that maryland already has some of the toughest laws in the country. ahead, we'll hear what some vms

say about that. reporting from annapolis, chris gordon, news4. metro is now proposing a way to give back to riders when there are significant delays. general manager paul wiedefeld is recommending that riders be allowed to leave a station within 15 minutes and not be charged anything. right now riders are charged even if they leave the same station they just entered. riders have complained that after they enter a station and see significant delays, they still have to pay if they chose to leave. the change would be part of metro's operating budget which takes effect in july. parents in frederick, maryland, are being asked to monitor their kids' activities on social media. this came after a high school student called in a bomb threat at oakdale high last tuesday. the sheriff's office and the school administrators traced that call to a student at catoctin high school and the student told them he did it as a prank. he's now facing a number ever charges, including thre

80 around gaithersburg, germantown only 85. stafford, quantico, too. 84 laplata and greenbelt getting up to 83 around college park. late tomorrow some clouds come in. we have a chance for a little bit in the way of a shower. that's the green you're seeing, western maryland, do you agree the evening hours tomorrow. but as the front drops south and east, just clouds here and i really think our chances will be drying up, maybe a little sprinkle early friday morning. that's it. for saturday clouds to start. there's your 61 at 1:00 for a high temperature. it will be cooler this upcoming weekend, but our temperatures will hold steady i think in the upper 50s as we get into saturday night. if you have plans to go out, it's not looking too bad at all. let's look at the storm team4 four-day forecast. 80 tomorrow, one more day. then friday around 70 degrees. it gets a little breezy. your weekend, rain chances. again, we're springing forward. daylight saving time begins.

investigated to understand why bond was an option in the first place. court documents paint an alarming history between 30-year-old kevin reynolds and his ex-girlfriend tarekka jones. family members say jones was a single mother of three who had a child with reynolds. according to police, in february when he dropped off their young child at the cheverly station apartments, he threw jones to the ground, dragging her around the parking lot and later returned with a gun. he was charged with assault and arrested at the beginning of march. >> he was in a no-bond status which is what we originally requested. >> reporter: prince george's county state's attorney angela alsobrooke said with reynolds' lengthy criminal past, he should have never been out of jail but jones changed her story in court defending her abuser. she wanted the bond reduced so she could make the bond. >> reporter: one week later reynolds returned to the apartment shooting and killing jones and her half sister, jalisa walls-harris, about ever

5:34 pm
it doesn't always work perfectly. it's an attempt to try to do something about it, but the tsa system was never intended to prevent fugitives from traveling. >> does this man have a history of mental health issues and was he ever tracked for that? >> no, not that we know of. his family says he has a history of mental problems. the secret service says he was arrested after he tossed some things over the white house fence, some papers and a thumb drive. they haven't said what it is, but it's very likely the same thing he sent to the news media in the coeur d'alene, idaho, area, which is a 30-page note about why -- this is secret service today searching the area of the grounds where that material was thrown over. he says that he thinks america is in danger of being taken over by martians, space aliens. he also says that the pastor that police accuse him of shooting on sunday was basically one of them. >> okay. so that tells us a lot right there. >> serious mental problem

a maryland mother whose daughter's death has been blamed on a key ignition switch defect is pushing for a car safety law. >> news4 consumer reporter susan hogan recently sat down with the mother and joins us with her story. susan? >> well, the bill namentd in honor of amber rose goes before a senate hearing tomorrow. her birth mother says had this bill been in effect when she died in 2005, her daughter would be alive today. >> it was about 3:00 or 3:30 in the morning. >> reporter: laura christian remembers july 29th, 2005, like it was yesterday. >> i picked up the phone,
5:46 pm
she told me that amber had been in a car accident and that she didn't make it. and all i could do is scream. at the funeral a police officer came up to us and told us that her air bags didn't deploy. we didn't understand truly what that meant at that time. >> reporter: until nine years later when general motors notified nhtsa it was recalling more than 2 million vehicles because of defective ignition switch that can effect the safe operation of air bag systems. a federal investigation found amber's ignition switch was in the accessory position. according to nhtsa, if the key is not in the run position, the air bags may not deploy if the vehicle is involved in a crash. by the time of the recall, there were already more than a dozen deaths linked to the defect, including amber's, and since then the number of people killed has climbed. the legislation, amber's
5:47 pm
asks to improve public access to key safety and warranty information. the bill's sponsors point to this, a report by the national highway traffic and safety administration that shows as early as may 2005, gm issued its first service advisory to dealers about possible issues with ignition switches saying, the driver may inadvertently turn off ignition. but the information was never passed along to customers. of two months later amber's 2005 chevy cobalt crashed. >> it took gm ten years to announce a recall, and how many people had to die? yet dealers had that information. >> reporter: the bill's sponsors say the legislation is about safety and transparency for all maryland drivers. >> so if you came in with a brake problem or another service issue and the dealership knew that there might be a very serious problem with your ignition switch that could put you at is
5:48 pm
supposed to share that information with you. we think that's an outrage and that's what we're trying to stop with this bill. >> reporter: news4 reached out to the alliance for auto manufacturers who is against this bill. in a statement it said in part this proposal would allow a car dealer to independently issue what appears to be a vehicle recall and direct repair work needed or not to his or her dealership. the potential for waste, fraud, deception, and abuse is enormous. laura doesn't see it that way, and that's why she's now testifying before maryland's lawmakers to keep amber's memory alive. >> i know she's very, very proud of me. i know that she's looking down from heaven and she's cheering me on. >> now, the ealliance of automobile manufacturers argue the consumer already have access to information dealers get from
